Air Canada has announced a partnership with Apple that will provide Apple TV+ content for the airline’s in-flight entertainment system. Air Canada customers will now have access to a selection of movies and TV shows available on Apple TV+ during their flights, even if they do not have an Apple TV+ subscription.
As announced by the Canadian airline in a blog post (via iPhone in Canada), as of Monday, customers can now watch Apple TV+ content on Air Canada’s in-flight entertainment system. The partnership brings popular titles like Ted Lasso, Bad Sisters, Severance, and Foundation to Air Canada aircraft screens.
“We look forward to welcoming customers onboard to catch up on their favourite Apple TV+ shows or discover new hits during their flight,” said John Moody, Managing director of product design at Air Canada. “This new partnership with Apple puts us on track to increase our onboard entertainment content by more than 95 per cent since last year,” he added.
Air Canada’s in-flight entertainment system currently features more than 420 movies, 1,000 episodes of TV shows, 130 music albums, plus multiple podcasts.
Air Canada is also offering two free months of Apple TV+ to new and returning subscribers. In Canada, this is an $8.99 per month value.
